||Preventive measures in agricultural settings
||July-Sep. 1991, Vol.6, No.3, p.541-550. 31 ref.
||This paper examines the role of preventive measures in reducing death and injury in agriculture. The following areas are covered: legislation; engineering and design; environmental damage caused by pesticides; health provider education; farmer education. It is argued that U.S. federal government leadership is the key factor in education efforts, and several practical suggestions for legislative initiatives are offered. Several state and non-U.S. programmes are cited as examples of successful strategies for prevention, especially in the areas of legislation and farmer education.
